Befordransföreläsning av Max Ortiz Catalán

​Bionic limbs and neurorehabilitation of pain
Max Ortiz Catalán, Ph.D., is the Founder and Director of the Center for Bionics and Pain Research ( and currently an Associate Professor on Bionics at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, where he also heads the Bionics research unit. 

He led the development the first bionic arm directly connected to patient's bone, nerves, and muscles, which is the first technology that allows for safe, permanent, and intuitive closed-loop control of prosthetic hands in daily life. In addition, he developed a novel treatment for Phantom Limb Pain that has helped chronic sufferers for whom no other treatments were effective, as well as the proponent on the latest hypothesis of origin and optimal treatments for the condition. 

He has received several honors, notably the “Swedish Embedded Award” by the Swedish Electronic Association in 2018, the “Brian & Joyce Blatchford Award” by ISPO in 2017, the “Delsys Prize” by Delsys in 2016, and the “European Youth Award” by the European Council in 2014. 

His research includes bioelectric signals acquisition electronics (analog and digital); bioelectric signal processing and machine learning algorithms for decoding motor volition and control; neuromuscular interfaces; neurostimulation for sensory feedback; bone-anchored prostheses and osseointegration; and virtual and augmented reality for neuromuscular rehabilitation and the treatment of phantom limb pain.
